I've used this exact cement for over fifty years and it is the very best for building plastic models. I've tried the non-toxic Testors cement and after about a year, the parts start falling off. I've tried many other cements but none of them worked well. If you are building a plastic model use the right stuff. The glue stick from Testors is also very good as is the Testors liquid cement. The secret is to buy Testors products for building your models. I am also the owner of an online model store that sells products from Amazon.com and [...]. I've been in business for fourteen years in April 2010 and I've personally built over three hundred models. I know what I'm talking about and this is the glue that I really like and I have found no other that works anywhere as well. The YellowAirplane Guy.

This stuff has been around for years and it's just how I remember it. I've been building plastic models for over 30 years and the Testors brand in the red tube is what I started with when I was 7 years old. I haven't used it in years though and have way since gone to much better stuff (see my last paragraph on my recomendations)

The Pros: It does what its meant to do - bond two pieces of polystyrene plastic together and keep them together. It dries fairly quickly so you're not sitting there holding the parts together forever waiting for the glue to cure. It is better than Testors non-toxic version of the glue. The non-toxic stuff doesn't have the odor but it doesn't have the bonding power either. Its inexpensive and can be bought anywhere where plastic models are sold, even big box stores like Wal-Mart.

The Cons: High odor so make sure there is plenty of ventilation. The tube opening is way too wide for my liking which doesn't give you a lot of control of the flow of glue coming out. Testors makes applicator tips to go on the end of the glue tube but from what I recall they clog up very easy and they are a separate purchase of the cement. Last but certainly not least, is that this stuff is very thick and stringy. You have to be careful not to get strings of loose glue on your model because of the viscosity of this stuff. In my opinion, the Testors red tube glue is for the casual model builder that builds an occasional model over a weekend for fun. For the more serious and incriminating modeler, see my following recomendations...

I'm a serious model builder and have entered and won many local contests. I build everything from military models (including tanks, planes, and ships), to cars.

Ah model glue. Nothing brings back memories of childhood model building like a whiff of freshly opened Testors Cement for plastic models.

Last weekend my son and I purchased a pack from a local store to build a WWII level 2 model plane kit. The glue works as I remembered, drying fairly quickly when 2 plastic pieces are pressed together. The tube has a wide mouth and you need to be careful how hard you press the sides because it can come out fast. I wish Testors would make these with a slimmer applicator tip, but it isn't a big deal. It doesn't take much to create a firm bond on the model parts and we have plenty left over for our next kit.

((I rated this 4-stars across the board - Amazon should remove the toy category ratings))

Testors tube glue has been around forever, and pretty much anybody who has built a model kit has used this glue. It can get messy, but Testors model cement is still an excellent choice for basic kit assembly. Use it sparingly, and scrape any paint or chrome plating from glue joints. Used correctly it works great. Super glue has its uses in kit building, but general assembly is not it. Highly recommended!

Best glue out there for models. Don't use comparison glues, won't hold up. My son loves his models, this glue will definately keep them together. Nothing worse than putting all that work into them and have them fall apart.

I use this to put together some miniature gaming models, and so far it has held up perfectly. My only gripe is that the plastic cement does not evenly flow out of the tube. For the longest time the glue will not come out, and then it will explode out in a large glob. The consistency is right, and I'm not squeezing the tube too hard, it just appears to be an issue with how the tube is designed. If you're dealing with any fine detail work, make sure to use a separate applicator or have something handy to clean up the excess plastic cement.

I looked locally for this product with no luck. The glue is the only thing to use on plastic models, which are not as popular as they were in the 1960's, but still exist. I used it for a Visible V8 and it handled all my bonding needs except where I had to attach metal nuts to the plastic, that required 2-part epoxy to adhear to the metal. This is the timeless plastic model cement. I don't know if it kills brain cells like the stuff from the 60's, but it does hold plastic together well.
